So I've been having a lot of trouble in most of my classes lately. I'm a junior going on senior, an accounting/finance double major. I seem to be getting terrible grades on my tests for some of my courses. I study so much and seem to grasp the material, but when I go in on test day I try to be confident and calm...but I get anxious inside because I know I'm a bad test taker. I take the test and usually walk out feeling semi-confident, but when I get my grade it's completely unacceptable and really embarrassing.
I've always been a good student and now I seem to have this terrible outcome when it comes to test taking. I've always had trouble on standardized tests and test taking in general, but I don't know what else to attribute it to or what to do about it. I need to improve.
Either way I'm completely down on myself and really in need for some advice and encouragement.
Anyone else here a good student, but a bad test taker or had a terrible semester? How'd you turn it around?
